My gourami's rarely fight at all, they actually play together. U could look into black skirt tetras too. They have large fins like that of angels.

I have 5 serpae tetras and 5 high fin black skirt tetras in a 55 gallon tank. And at times I will catch them all going after each other. Is it normal. What other fish could I go with? I would really like to get some angel fish. With the fish I have now acting as they do would it be a bad idea?

I like black skirt tetras and bleeding hearts.

Just a bit of info, I've ordered Congo tetras and red phantom tetras for my new tank. You could look into those.

Rummies r great once they get acclimated. What about cardinals? I added a ram to my angelfish and they get along swimmingly!

Black Skirts and Serpaes are both nippy fish. They should be in large groups when possible to spread out the aggression like Tiger Barbs.

I personally don't recommend either with long finned fish.

Well I have 4 black skirts in my tank with my angels and they've never nipped, they're super timid.
